2004 Lincoln LS 3.9 from North America
Poor value for the money
Steering squeak; took 6 trips to get this fixed by the dealer.
Ignition coil, major expense, had to remove the intake manifold etc.
Faulty air bag unit, wanted $2500 to replace the electrical system.
Faulty heated and cooled seats.
Gas door release faulty.
This car is a piece of crap, and I would not recommend it as a used vehicle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

The ignition coil seems like the only real problem here; the other "problems" are just amenities failing. I suspect you're being ripped off by shops/dealerships. The LS isn't one of Lincoln's best cars, but it's not the worst either. Don't go to the dealership for service unless you have a warranty; they don't know anything and overcharge on everything.

There was a recent Motoramic auto article on cars that dealers do not want (including the Lincoln LS) because of various problems they have...
Dealers don't want them, but because of that, there could be some great bargains out there on these cars. And if you are handy with a wrench or a part time mechanic, there could be some steals out there. Some of those cars were $20,000 to $40,000 when new.
